Mixed Media Art:
The idea of mixed media art is really quite simple. Rather than create a work in only one material such as oils for painting or clay for sculpture, a mixed media artist combines materials to make a visual work. Some famous combinations for mixed media art include metals and found items ("trash") in sculpture as well as the blending of painting, cutting, and stamping techniques in altered books and greeting card making.

For many amateur artists, mixed media art and mixed media-inspired crafts, like journaling and scrap booking are really accessible ways to express themselves. However, for anyone interested in either creating or acquiring mixed media art, it is best to understand the genre not by what it is, but by what it is not. In other words, mixed media art is limited to the visual arts.

Kathleen Toledano mixed media artist and anthropologist
Her artwork comes from a passion for observing people and the world we live in. How we, individually and together, interact and view the world.

Kathleen's Kollection is the receptacle of all the artwork she creates: shadow boxes, jewelry, decorated handbags and home decorations. Her artistic process starts with one object or text; it may be a poem, or a vintage frame or purse that inspires an idea that she wants to express. From there she gathers items collected over many years to create unique art objects. Her artwork integrates found objects, vintage jewelry pieces as well as toys, paper, stamps, photographs and her own drawings and paintings. Each piece is unique.
